Agnes Tirop: Emotional Moment in Mosoriot as Celebrated Olympian is Laid to Rest.

Olympian Agnes Tirop has been laid to rest in an emotional send-off with a number of leaders demanding the swift recovery of her assets.

The leaders maintained that it's prudent for the family of the slain athlete to console themselves with their daughter’s hard-earned sweat through sports.

Some of Tirop’s assets include rental houses, near 12 plots, and among others that the family revealed to own been registered under his estranged husband. The governor also called on the family of the suspect to carry consultative talks and release any sort of assets belonging to the slain athlete without subjecting the 2 families in court battles.

The slain athlete was buried at 5 pm in Nandi on daily that she would have celebrated her 26th birthday. Similar sentiments were echoed by Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei who challenged the investigating agencies to form use of the Assets Recovery Unit (ARU) in safeguarding the property left behind by the athlete.

The leaders also lashed out at the government’s leadership for doing little to support sportspersons while insisting that they need always brought glory to the country following their constant stellar performance within the globe.

The senator further noted that athletes are the country’s pride and will be supported through the creation of state-of-the-art training facilities.

Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi took issue with the ministry of sports for failing to supply support to the athletes despite carrying the country’s flag high and being good ambassadors.

The team represented by 5000 gold medalist Joshua Cheptegei said Tirop’s death shocked the globe and called on citizens to talk against Gender-Based Violence (GBV).
